The five new models – the 88 Yacht, 65 Sport Yacht, Manhattan 55, Predator 55 EVO and 90 Ocean – dominated the waters as they sailed to Studland Bay in perfect formation against a breath-taking sunrise.
Revealing five new models reflects the extraordinary pace of product development and a feat never before seen in the company’s history.
To celebrate their arrival, a special guest and friend of the brand, actor Hugh Bonneville, recently visited the boat builder in Poole to support a very special launch video. The sheer expanse of Sunseeker’s presence, with its legendary shipyard set against the backdrop of the town’s historic quayside made for an ideal filming location.
Joined by Sunseeker CEO, Andrea Frabetti, and Douglas Culverwell, Director of Distributor Development, Hugh experienced the Sunseeker Famous Five first-hand by going behind the curtain of this complex operation.
As well as touring the shipyards that house these remarkable yachts and meeting with the teams responsible for building them, Hugh experienced each of the vessels.
He relished the exceptional interiors of the 88 Yacht, sat comfortably at the innovative SkyHelm of the 65 Sport Yacht, and felt right at home on the all-new X-TEND transforming sunbed; just some of the many latest technology innovations on board these class-leading, industry-defining models.
Hugh commented: “A few years ago, I joined the Sunseeker team at the London Boat Show and quickly came to understand that this company is so much more than a brand – it’s a global family”.
“Sunseeker don’t just build boats, they build dreams and I feel very fortunate to join in the celebratory launch of these incredible new models. It’s an outstanding achievement of which the iconic British company can be justifiably proud.”
“It was a great privilege to welcome Hugh back to Poole to help launch all five new models, each imbued with Sunseeker style and innovation,” said Andrea Frabetti.
“This is the culmination of a great deal of hard work, talent and passion by the entire workforce; the credit rests with each and every one of them. This launch is a truly momentous occasion, and I cannot wait to welcome even more clients to our burgeoning ‘family’ as our range continues to expand.”
